The previously unidentified former church on High Street has been identified by Howard Richter, who advises that it was Capel Mawr (Calvinistic Methodist), and named as such on the 1900 O.S. map. The grade II listing suggests a building date of 1822, with the building being re-fronted towards the end of the century (source here). When photographed it was being used by a firm of auctioneers, and was also partly residential. SH 4977 3812. © Dennis Harper (2013). The grade II listing suggests a building date of 1822.

Pen y Maes, otherwise Uchaf, Baptist Chapel. Originally built in the last years of the 18th century, it was soon re-built (1817).
